Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, this post should come as very little surprise to most of you, but the first load of my Christmas cards are now finished! Woot! What do you think of them all???

The first pattern I did is a holly wreath. Looking at it now, I think it would be better with the ribbon at the bottom (can I just be happy with what I did, and not pick it apart already please???)!

The berries are gorgeous, and I love them!

Then I did some with candles. I like these, although punching the holes for the candle proved slightly awkward, and didn’t work on one of them. Fixed the problem though, and again, love the berries! This pattern didn’t have specific holes for the berries, but there we go. Still worked well.

Wow the candles look wonky in this picture! I assure you, in real life they are perfectly straight.

The final design (this one is definitely my fav, and also my mum’s) is a sort of flower. I especially love the spirally bit down the side, but the flower is also gorgeous 🙂

I almost would prefer this flower to be on the left, but it’s still very pretty (Why? Am? I? Never? Satisfied???)


So, everyone. Which is your favourite???

  1. They are all very cool. The candles look perfect, so no worries! But my favorite is the last one too, really beautiful!

  2. They are all so beautiful! I cant decide on a fave. So much beautiful detail in them all!

  3. The last one is my favourite, but you did a beautiful job on them all. 😊
